Via Ferrata in Chamonix Mont Blanc, Do a via Ferrata with a mountain Guide

Translated from Italian, "Iron Roads" is a mix between hiking and climbing. Via Ferrata routes are built into rock faces with cables and ladders and other equipment designed to facilitate people's progression along the route and to optimize their security.
Great for families and friends who want to join in an outdoor adventure, via ferrata is a step up from alpine hiking, but doesn't demand the technical skill of climbing. 
 
                   
Using a harness and 2 slings to attach yourself to a cable you can progress along a big cliff, clipped to the mountain and roped to your coach: a Mountain Guide specialist(UIAGM) in optimum feeling of security.  
 
Although no real climbing ability is needed, via ferrata does demand a steady head for heights. It's a nice thrilling experience!
A great activitiy for those seeking something more challenging than just alpine hiking.
There are many areas for via ferrata in under an hour's drive from Camonix. Ideal for everyone including beginners and children: from age 10/12 years
No prior experience is required....
